Despite numerous dog beds being scattered around the house in various rooms, these 2 seem to like to hog one of the sofa’s. Flatcoats are renowned for sleeping in weird positions but we won’t have it any other way.
Again, love it or hate it, Facebook does pop up some memories which takes us back to different events. This time last year we were a few days into our Motorhome trip up to Scotland, and the weather was great. We took the woofers on a lovely walk on the Northumberland coast. Sitting here inContinue reading “May 16th – Memories”
